Bob, ABC electronics sells diamond products now. They dropped kicker and another brand just to carry diamond products. They are located on the north east corner of 22nd and harlem. I would go there and listen to them, and then buy them online(cheaper). woofersetc.com has pretty good prices.

This is a legitimate company with some of the best prices I've ever seen. I ordered 2 sets of Boston Acoustics speakers and a Pioneer head unit and everything went smooth and was shipped quickly.

I do not like having to drill an extra tweeter hole.

What about the best amps? I am looking to upgrade mine now. Any suggestions would be helpful.
I have MB's in my truck & now JL in the boat and I like the JL's better. I used the JL amps as well...see pic above.

Both amps are mounted in the engine compartment up against the rear seat.

I have heard the JL subs are one of the top line, I may have to wait for the 7.7 coaxial speakers though. I need two 10" subs, PM me a price on 2 10" subs shipped to VA. UPS ground is OK.

Do I really need the Marine amps? They will be in the cabin. I also will probally want 2 pair of 7.7's and 2 pair of 6.5's. I will look at the amps to see what I want.

Thanks LLH

Linnie, I have 2 JL Audio 10" :

http://mobile.jlaudio.com/products_subs.php?series_id=5

James used 1 of these amps:

http://mobile.jlaudio.com/products_amps.php?amp_id=252

for both of his speakers. I have one per speaker.
MS likes sitting on the back seat! 'Nuff said!



I just got word back from Tweeter that my MB Quart RA4200 amp was un-fixable (what the heck); so they replaced it.
